High School DxD Season 5: Release Date And Renewal Status

Since Issei got a second life he needs to learn how to fight and train himself to survive in a world of angels and devils.

Animes have become everyone's favorite as the storylines are incredibly vast. 'High School DxD' is another anime that is based on a Japanese manga series and it has been adapted into several successful anime series and spin-offs since 2012.  Not to miss, 'High School DxD' has a huge fan base who are now waiting for the fifth season to come. Even though no official announcement has been made, fans do expect that Season 5 of 'High School DxD' will take forward the story from the arc of Hero Oppai Dragon from the manga. Here is everything we know so far about the fifth installment. 


When Will 'High School DxD' Season 5 Premiere?


The fourth season of High School DxD premiered on April 17, 2018, and ended on July 3, 2018. However, there isn't any news about the fifth season or development related to it. Season 4 when aired showed the Hero Oppai Dragon story arc from the manga in the beginning, covering Volume 9 and 10.  Therefore, we can base our expectation on the fact that there are material and content for season 5 and it is expected to continue the story arc and adapt Volumes 11 and 12. However, Passion Studio is yet to comment on it. If everything goes smoothly, we can expect the fifth installment to come in 2020 or 2021.

However, a 2020 release seems very unlikely given the current COVID-19 situation. It may not stop the production but it will certainly slow it down. We will keep this article updated as new information emerges.

What Is 'High School DxD' All About?

The story revolves around Kuoh Academy or Kuō Gakuen which was an old girls' school before turning into a co-ed institution. But, the school has a secret hidden inside it which no one knows of—that it is the home of many fallen angels, both good and bad. The main character of the show is Issei Hyoudou.

Issei happens to be a promiscuous guy who dreams of having his own Harem one day and wants to date some of the beautiful girls in his school. He couldn't believe his fate when a beautiful girl named Yuuma Amano asked him out for a date. However, little did he know that Yuma is none other than a fallen angel called Raynare, and gets stabbed to death by her. Issei, however, gets a second chance at life when a beautiful senior Rias Gremory brings him back to life. But, giving Issei his life back, Rias had her own intentions as she was a top-notch devil. She makes Issei her servant and forces him to work for the school's Occult Research Club. 


Since Issei got a second life he needs to learn how to fight and train himself to survive in a world of angels and devils. The show moves forward and eventually, it becomes clear that there is something wrong with the Occult Research Club's Knight, Yuuto Kiba who is composed and cautious most of the time. Issei finds out the reason behind Kiba's unusual behavior is because of his dark and bloody past where he was subjected to a brutal experiment. As Issei tries to know more about the mystery and secret, an old enemy returns with the new ones and he is left with his comrades to fight them back.

Fans see later in the show that Issei's and his comrade's weaknesses are exposed by their sworn enemies, resulting in making Rias realize that her team is immature and have been acting like one for so long. Therefore, she along with Azazel lead the members of the Occult Research into a high-intensity training regime in the Underworld to prepare them for whatever challenges might be waiting ahead. When the team matures, they have to face none other than Loki who is the evil God of Mischief in Norse mythology, and to win against him is going to be the toughest thing to do.

Who All Are The Characters For The Fifth Installment?

The main character is Issei Hyoudou, along with him there are Rias Gremory, Asia Argento, Yuuto Kiba, Akeno Himejima, and Koneko Toujou. All of them have an important role to play. 

Why Is It Taking So Long For The Fifth Installment To Come?


It is being said that the studio which is responsible for the production of the previous four seasons will no longer be a part of the anime show in any capacity. This was the main reason for the long break between the fourth season and the current one. Because of this, nobody talked about anything further as they wanted to be sure about everything else before making any comments. The reason behind the shift of studios happened because those who were responsible for the show wanted to follow the graphic novels which are based on much more closely than the previous studio had been. With the former four stories, the studio started drifting away in the terms of the story in the manga and basically started making or rather say creating its own story. The situation becomes a little complex here as both the manga and the anime series are equally loved by the fans and have a huge fan base. Many fans who follow the show and read the manga have complained that it is like being exposed to two completely different things, which is why the decision was made to change the production company.
